I don't Know if any one else here kayak fishes but I have been doing so for the last 5 years and haven't looked back.
We get all the common species Gummies - Snapper - whiting as you would expect
but back in Jan a group of us ( 7 in all ) headed north to South West Rocks for our first go chasing Marlin with the kayaks .
Shane ,one of our group picked up a 22.2 Kg wiggler on day one
heres his youtube clip of it

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3NU5rVWZ5HA

there was also a 118 cm Mahi Mahi and a couple on Spanish Macks caught
no luck by myself but got 7 straight days in fishing out the front trying
a couple of days the boats couldn't get out through the bar but we were out in pretty bumpy conditions
Check out SWR chenski that a kayak there under that flag

tea tree 2013 are couple of snapper caught off the yak a 8.55 kg and a 4.47 kg - I also pulled a 1 meter long gummy as well same trip

and you can see I slum a bit with lunch I have a couple of nice Oyster grounds near a few of my marks
so low tide days I take a lemon and an Oyster tool to open them 1/2 a dozen for lunch isn't bad

Seems like you thoroughly enjoy yourself and catch some nice feeds of fish. You can have being out in that sort of weather though - rough!!! Shocked

Loved the video. Have seen lots of yakkas doing their stuff and my opinion hasn't changed. Bloody madmen  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

Pity the marlin couldn't survive, but sounds like you enjoyed a good feed  Smiley

You are definitely a 10 percenter that catches 90 percent of the fish  Smiley

Sitting here  drooling over those oysters.

Those snapper are no good. Too big for a camp oven  Grin

Yes we were into the marlin steaks done in teriyaki on the Barby that night - yum

Looking forward to next years trip up there as we will return with a bit more knowledge on the area
the 17 hour+ drive does cut down how often we can head up that way

but thats next year we have been watching the weather like hawks trying to pick a slot to head to Portland to chase Blue Fin Tuna
having the weather right , the fish in close enough , swell down enough and to be able to get away from work
is a lot to get lined up together
